Link of the Week: K. M. Weiland Blog Post on Routines

This week's Link is to a blog post from earlier this year by K. M. Weiland. She talks about the pros and cons of having a routine for your writing.
"Can you name one thing that could harm your writing if you do it—and if you don’t? Writing "routines" might not be the first answer to pop to mind. But nothing affects our writing more than the routine (or lack of one) with which we implement our writing into our day. Unfortunately, if we don’t approach routines with just the right mindset, they can cause more harm than good." 
The post is:  How Routines Save (and Ruin) Your Writing by K. M. Weiland and I think it does a great job of looking at the benefits and risks to both options. Obviously, I'm a big fan of having a routine for my own writing and I think that for many writers having a routine can help them achieve greater productivity. But there are some people who work better in other ways, and K. M.'s post may help you figure out more about your own work style.
